Refrigerator & Freezer Maintenance Tips

To ensure the appliance is not overworking and runs as efficiently as possible:

Following these recommendations will help your refrigerator to work efficiently and prolong its working life.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some signs my refrigerator may not be working like it should?

Some telltale signs your fridge or freezer aren’t working properly include:

  • Running too cold, not cold enough or fluctuations in temperature.
  • Water pooling under your fridge.
  • Your freezer not turning on.
  • Clunking noises from your fridge or freezer.
  • No ice coming from your freezer.

Can you work on my freezer?

Yes!

In most cases, ABC’s appliance repair technicians can make repairs to your standalone freezer units, whether you have any of the following problems:

  • your freezer is not running entirely
  • it’s not cold enough
  • it’s too cold
  • there is a loud noise coming from the freezer
  • it is cycling on and off repeatedly
  • there is water accumulating on the floor or inside the freezer

Should I fix or replace my fridge?

When one of our professionals comes to your home, you will receive an honest answer about whether fixing or replacing your fridge will be the best financial decision.

One of the things we will take into consideration is how long you have owned your refrigerator or freezer. If you own a compact refrigerator, the service life is generally about four to twelve years, while standard refrigerators work anywhere from ten to eighteen years. Your freezer should last anywhere from twelve to twenty years. If you have been performing regular maintenance on your appliances, they will probably keep working for longer than average.

If you’re thinking about replacing your fridge, keep in mind that the best rebates occur around holidays, including President’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day and Black Friday. If you can hold out and one of these days is approaching, it may save you money to make your purchase during these times of year.

What can I do to extend my refrigerator’s life?

There are a few things you can do to ensure your refrigerator and freezer are working in good condition.

You can prolong your refrigerator’s life by:

  • Cleaning the refrigerator coils regularly and making sure they are free of dust, pet hair and other debris.
  • Allowing adequate airflow behind your fridge’s motor—about two inches of space will suffice.
  • Keeping door seals free of buildup, such as melted popsicles and other sticky food residue.

By following these recommendations, you can help your equipment run smoothly and last for a longer period of time.

I bought a new refrigerator and want to recycle the old one. How do I do that?

Check with your local utility provider or charitable organizations. In many cases, the utility company or charity will pick up and properly dispose of your old working refrigerator or freezer at no charge. You may even qualify for cash incentives or tax deductions when you recycle your old appliances. If ABC installs your new appliance, we will remove and recycle your old appliance at no additional charge.

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
